There are many thoughts and opinions on what the future of legal tech should be and who should construct that future. If you’re a lawyer interested in influencing growth what are the best ways for you to partner with technologists to do so? How can developers and attorneys work together to help steer the evolution of this industry?

In this Special Report, Evolve Law Co-Founder Mary Juetten, moderator Joe Burchard, and Evolve Law Client Driven Technology Solutions panelists Kate White, John Rome, and Kathryn DeBord discuss the future of legal tech and how attorneys and technologists can best shape it. Mary opens the panel with a brief explanation of what Evolve Law is, a community focused on accelerating the adoption of technology within the legal profession, and her hopes that the discussion will help inspire the creation of a legal innovation group in Colorado. Joe provides an introduction for each panelist and starts a group analysis on the biggest pain points for practicing lawyers. Kate elaborates on what client driven tech solutions actually means, technology solutions tailored to relieve a specific client frustration. She considers new pressures on in-house counsel, the volume areas of work that need to be handled more efficiently, and how outside counsel can partner with legal professionals. Kathryn DeBord answers the question,”Do law firms need technology to grow?” and provides insight on how leveraging current technology can help to reduce monotonous tasks and free up attorneys to more consistently focus on the practice of law. The group then debates whether legal professionals should develop or aid in developing new technologies or whether that responsibility should be left solely in the hands of technologists outside of the industry. John shifts the conversation to data security and the lack of urgency in the legal tech community despite the recent Panama Papers leaks. The group then wraps up the panel with an analysis of artificial intelligence, why robots will never replace lawyers, and a question and answer session with the event attendees.
